San Fhaxcisco, July — The cross
examination of Judge Irvine w»3 suspended
yesterday afternoon to take the testimony of
J. o'ls. Gann, Secretary of the Piacerville
and Sacramento Railroad.
Mr. Gunn was sworn and testified that El
Dorado county owned no stock in the rail
road : that there had been no resolution of
tha Board of Directors authorizing Judge
Sanderson to write a certain latter offering
ojrtain propositions ; that no meeting of the
Directors had been held in regard to the prop
ositions contained.
Counsel not being able to sgree upon cer
tain questions about bonds of the company,
the witness was excused, to be called again.
\V. EL .Brown, a commission merchant re
siding at Shingle Springs, stated th&t since
the suspension of the road he ha:l to ship his
good*, amounting to about 200 tons per
month, to FoUom instead of Shiugle Spring?.
The difference of the present rates and the
way by rai! differed about S3 50 to 84 per
ton. The discontinuance of the road had a
very disastrous effect on the farmers, lumber
diakr?. etc. The fruit-growers were almost
demoralized, net knowing how to realize any
amount. Same of them stopped planting.
The eif=ct upon the fiuit crop would be about
one-half a total loss. Ha said that two-thirds
of the county of El Dorado received their sup
ply by that line. The price of property at
present was very bad, and real estate had
depreciated one-third iv value in the Foiuh
ern part of the county. If the road was not
operated curing the present year it would
probably result in a less of $200,000 to the
people in that section. Mr. Brown offered
to lease the road and put it in running oper
ation within twenty-five day 3, provided the
tre.=tlewoik of the road was not wor9e than
■ cd. He stated that he made the prop
osition not co much on his own account as
for the benefit that would accrue to the peo
ple in having the road "in operation.
r_'e EL Williams, Judge oi the Superior
Court of El Dorado county, then testified
before the Commission, corroborating the
statements of Mr. Brown in regard to the
general ir j 'iry sustained by the people by the
-i: tension oi the railroad, and stating that
three-fourths of the residents were affected.
He also stated that the mails were received
very irregularly on account of the suspension.
.1. 11. Miiler, a farmer and stock-raiser of
Latrobe, testified that before the suspens-i ;n
of the road the freight from Latrobe to Sac
ramento had been 1"> cents per 100 pounds,
while it now costs him about 40 cents, an in
crease of about -! cents, lie had bfen com
pelled to close hia hotel for want of patron
age, a3 no mere people arrived there since the
of the road. There was a large
amount of lumber lying in the neighborhood
which could not be transported, and in gen
eral he corr iborated the statements made by
other vmces'ej as to the damage inflicted
upon the residents of that section by the sus
pension of tlie load.
The Board adjourned until 10 o'clock thus

county to compel tin resumption of businege
on the Sacramento and Piacerville Railroad

The testimony of A. J. Adamp, a merchant
of liitrobe, was taken, corroborating the evi
dence of other residents of X! Dorado county
who testified yesterday afternoon.

A.N. Towne and wife, and J. C. Stubbs
and wife, have arrived in the city from a trip
to New Mexico and Ariz ma, where the gen
tlemen went some time ago to make Borne
business arrangements on behalf of the
Southern Pacific with the Atcbison, Topeka
and Santa Fe Railroad. Mr. Towns and Mr.
Stubbs were extensively interviewed by re
porters as to the success of their effort?, and
to [your correspondent Mr. Slubbs answered
that a satisfactory settlement had been
effected between the Southern Pacific and the
Atchison-Toj>eka Hue regarding freight and
passenger traffic in Arizona. By the terms
agreed upon the Southern Pacific leases to
the Atchis<iu and Topeka road running priv
ileges over their line from Deming to Ber
son ; but bo fir as traffic is concerned it will
he as Feparate ai:<l distinct as if the Atchison
and Topeka had their own road. It was sim
ply a satisfactory settlement of the question
whether it was better for both compacies to
run parallel roads through that section of
country, than to compete for a trade not suf
ficient to pay the lunnir.g expenses of either.
The lease hat been signed, and can of the
Atchison and Topeka Company may be ex
pected to be running into Benson within the
next two months. Mr. Stubbs told the reporter
further that the Atchison and Topeka will
bull to the Sonora line from Benson, where
it will connect with the Sun ira Railroad,
which is now being constructed from Guaj.

The Workingmen't Municipal Convention
had an exceedingly stormy session last night,
and had it not been for the foresight of the
presiding officer in appointing an unnsually
large number of Sergeants -at- Arms to preserve
a semblance of order there would have been
numerous fights, as the opposing factions
were hitter in their harangues and very sug
gestive in their actions. The trouble arose
from the hot contest between the Desmond
-cohorts and the anti«. Desmond is a candi
date far Sheriff, and in order to have any
show for election be must get the indorse
ment of both Workingmen and Democrat*,
because if both parties have a candidate
Sedgwick. the Republican nominee for that
office, will have an going thing of it. If
nominated by the Workingraeo, Desmond \
confidently expects to be indorsed by the
Democrats, hence hi* strong fight But he
has many bitter enemies in the ward clubs,
from several of which delegates oppostd to
him were sent to the Municipal Conventijc.
His friends, however, got up the customary
contests against these delegation?, and last
night the contestants from all the ward
clubs, except in one instance, were allowed
seats in the Convention, and the others
ousted. This waa accomplished by
a vote bo large as to prove
that Desmond has the Convention
by a large insprity. Desmond* victory
also kills the project some delegates enter
tuned of nominating a straight ticket, and
running it regariless of consequences.

The Fi=h Commiisioners are receiving
many complaints against the destruction of
fish in brook?, creeks and likes in the State,
by persons whose piratical ways leave noth
ing in the way of £j?h in waters where they
depredate. These pirates use several kinds
of drug 3 which poison the waters, and giant
powder which kills everything in rang?.
Streams once grod fishing grounds in Maim,
Sonoma, San Mateo and Santa Ciara conn
ties have been almost cleaned out of fish by
these fellows. Several years ago a gentleman
living near a fine brook in San Mateo county
that had been cleared of trout by giant pow
der fishermen got the Fish Commissioners
tj stock it with brook trout. The adventure
succeeded admirably, and fjr a year or
two the fUh multiplied till they afforded
excellent sport. Thid did not last Jong, for
the giant powder man came along, and what
he did not succeed in killing the pc-iaon fiend
obtained with hia driv.'?. What made the
matter worse was the fact that the fellows
who did the work were mostly residents in
the vicinity of the brook. Pirates from the
city would have been guarded against, but no
idea waa entertained that the countrymen
themselves woul.] perpetrate to barbarous an
act, and they were not looked after. That
brook haß not been re3tocked the second time,
and will Dot bo until people iivins; around it
learn that gian 1 ; powder aad poison 3 are not
proper fishing implements. The above i 3 but
one instance out of many where the efforts of
the Fish Commi=s:oners have been made val
ueless by vandals, and the Bjard v getting
tired of these proceedings ; and if the piracies
are not stopped, the stocking and restocking
of fishing grounds iv the future will be con
fined to localities where some respect will be
paid to the laws of decency and of the State.

The stock market is in a decidedly unset
tled condition, and variations in prices, mall
in amount though large in ratio, have been
the rule since Monday ; lha general trend of
values, however, being downward. The pub
lic, from appearances, are not buyers, as a
few orders to buy or sell raises or depresses
any Btock dealt in. The belief entertained
by the street that there U a long season of
assessments and dead work ahead has a very
depressing effect at present,
The recent spurt in the wheat market is
apparently over. The session c f the Produce
Exchange to-day was quiet, but few sales be
ing made public. The scarcity of available
tonnage is a drawback to any activity in the
spot market, but there is a lively movement
in the interior, and producers have no diffi
culty in selling desirable parcels en a basis of
SI 42.} here, or even batter for select lots.
About 37,500 ton?, good for wheat, is either
fully or overdue, the loading of which has for
the most part been secured at current rates.
Money in very plentiful, and no difficulty
is experienced in obtaining loans on good se
curity at 3 and 10 per cent, from commercial
banks or capitalists ; while 5 per cent, on
prime security 13 considered high for call
loans. The demand from the interior has
been somewhat greater lately en account of
movement of crop*, but every requirement
has been fully met. The low price of stocks
and tLe narrow margin* allowed by brokers
has cut off the demand from that quarter.
There is considerable building g -ling on

ported that he had been in correspondence

There is no speculative feeling whatever per

demand for business property arises from the
( desire of those having money to make profit
able investments and from the necessity of
business men and firms owning their own
places of doing business. There ii also somn
inquiry from Eastern capitalists now in the
city for good-paying business property.

Ilors— The circular of Phil Neis places last year's
crop on this coast at 500 bales, of which 8,540
b.de3 were grown in California, 4,890 do in Washing
ton Territory, and 1,635 do in Oregon. The quality
of California was somewhat mixed, that of Wash
ington Territory scarcely up to previous years,
owing to being partly frosted, while the Oregon
crop was no better than usual The prospect for the
new California crop is said 10 be rather discourag
ing, the indications at present painting to a shorter
crop thin last season. The vines of Washington
Territory are said to be looking better than for the
Ust two seasons, and if nothing interferes one
million pounds will be produced. The crop of Or
egon i 3 expo cted to show an Increase of 10 ps r cent,
over last j ear. Ihe best care has been given to the
yaids, and most el them just now promise a heavy

The demand for Wool has been fair, »nd the bmi-
I nrsi of tho week a good average. Supplies continue
I to arrive quite freely, the receipts <f domestic for
the pwt two weeks »mounting to some 13.000,000
lbs. There is now a fine assortment of all kinds of
fering. The Bales of the week have been 2,577,000
:h'. Washed fleeces lave been rather neglected, and
I tot them prices are a sh?;le lower ; but all other
kind" are very firm, Manufacturers are. now well
supplied with wool, bay ng been largo purchasers
on the street and to arrive. They have now con
cluded to draw out, and we look for a comparatively
quiet market for some weeks, sales of Ohio and
Penury vaoia fleeces have been at [email protected] for X and
I XX. Forty-two cents is now about the outside
I figure for good average lots of XX. Much
fleeces have been sold at 40c for X, but
buyers are holding back and are not inclined to pay
over::S«49c, which is ■ fferrd for large lot?. The
demand for combing and delaine is quietly active,
all available lots taken from trains bringing [email protected]«0,
medium and No. 1 combing [email protected], including Ken
tucky and Indiana, at the latter price. Unwashed
fleeces have been in demand, upwards of 3.000,000
pounds having been sold at [email protected] for low and
coarse, [email protected] for fine, and 2S«jS6c for medium.
California wool is quiet, but steady, with sales at
£703*: for spring, and 16iia22c for fall. Pulled
wools are quiet, prices ranging from [email protected] for
common and choice supers. In foreign wools trans
actions have not been m-ide to any extent. Cape
